“We have government by the majority who participate.”

-Thomas Jefferson


Civic Duty.  I never even knew what that meant.  Growing up in a military family, I was the closet activist, the anti-war protester, civil rights, Chicano Pride…but I was really in a bubble.  I never knew the inter-city struggle or even the civil rights struggle because my parents raised me so very muxh in mainstream America.   I learned Spanish in school, not at home.  I loved to discuss current affairs and my mom would get up in the night to find my father and I at the dinner table discussing the Vietnam War, civil disobedience, Nixon and Watergate.  I could argue with the best of them and I had my facts, but it wasn’t until I was in my thirties that my mom told me I didn’t have the right to complain if I wasn’t registered to vote.  So, I registered.  But, it wasn’t until our President announced his candidacy did I first work on a campaign.

That was 2007board/2008 and since then, I have met some amazing people in local politics.  It was because of that 2008 election I decided to find out how local government works from the ground up, so I became a Precinct committee member.  I am a transplant from California.  I moved here in 1999 when my husband was given his disability rating from the Veteran’s Administration.  His family is from Oxford, here in Granville County.  What I have found, is there are a lot of transplants like me that have made Granville County home and want to make it the best home they can for their families and their community.  Chairman Ed Gleason, 3rd Vice Chair Cuz Spirio, and our Treasurer Lael Pennix are transplants, as I am.  I find it hard to believe that out of thousands of Granville County Democrats, we can’t get hometown folks to help the party as a member of the Executive Committee, participate in a meeting or two, volunteer on a committee, float an idea or two in an email.    But, I am learning what Thomas Jefferson said, is more often true, than not…”“We have government by the majority who participate.”

This last April, at the Granville County Democratic Convention, I was elected Secretary of the Granville County Democratic Party.  It’s not an election year so the participation this year has declined.  When I attend meetings, I see the same people, the same concerned faces.  This Board wants to change that.  We don’t need every Democrat in the County to attend every meeting, but we want everyone to be engaged, to be informed about us, about the issues facing our locale, our state, our government.  We suffered a set-back in the state government in 2012.  We have little or no voice.  Mrs. Mims said something at our first meeting on the 29th that she heard at the 13th District Convention held in Nashville, NC.  The guest speaker was State Treasurer Janet Cowell, a Democrat.  She said Ms. Cowell spoke on a strategy to deal with, on the NAACP Moral Mondays going on in Raleigh, and of note “We may win, we may lose, but we are not silent”.

This could very well be our mission statement:   “We may win, we may lose, but we are not silent”.

I chose to participate.  Please join me.  Until next time…God bless.

Fellow Politically Involved Citizens:

The Granville County Democratic Party now more than ever needs your involvement and support.  Please make an effort to be at this Thursday’s meeting, Jan 24th, from 6:30 til 8 p.m. at the Thornton Library in Oxford.  Winkie Wilkins will be there to provide insight into the challenges for the upcoming legislative session and how we might help.

Also make an effort to invite your District’s elected County Commissioner and any other interested person.

Hope to see you there.

Elaine McNeill

3rd Vice Chair

Welcome to the Granville County Democratic Party

Welcome to the web site of the North Carolina Granville County Democratic Party.  As you can see, to the left, you can also catch us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER!

Please take a good look around this website to get a feeling for how we are hoping to help all Democrats in the politics of real Democracy and in their day to day struggle in life.  Or at least to help you understand the horror of seeing politics done these days in Washington and Raleigh!

The Granville County Executive Board was elected in March 2012 and we are “on Board” until the next election in April of 2013—RIGHT THROUGH THE  CRITICAL ELECTION of 2012! There are six members on the Board and the full Granville County Executive Committee also includes the Chair and Vice Chair of each Precinct. We will provide contact info for the full committee so you can email or phone us.  You can also send us a question if you prefer in the general “contact us” tab. AND TELL US WHAT YOU THINK! See more of our thoughts under the navigation tabs at the top of the page.

We want to reach out to all of you and help you get REGISTERED TO VOTE if you are not and perhaps help you think about the critical state and national issues facing this nation.  These are momentous times as the County, State and Country go through very, very challenging economic and political times.  More than ever before, your political beliefs, values and philosophy will determine your situation in life and that of your children and grandchildren as well.

As you can see, we will have a calendar of events for you to check, some important Democratic links to investigate and an ISSUES section for important discussions.

Have a great time looking around and please come back and see our growth over the next few weeks and months!  Give us just a bit of time to get fully organized. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR VISITS!
